    Taking 7-night cruise on Fantasy Aug 13. How/when do I find out when we're eating where, when is semi-formal/formal night, and when is Pirate Night? Is it the 1st or 2nd night at Animator’s Palate that they turn the guests drawings into a cartoon?

    Ahoy, Michele!
    Congratulations on your upcoming Caribbean Cruise on the Disney Fantasy! You've asked some great questions about one of my favorite topics-dining! When you arrive at the beautiful Disney Cruise Line terminal, you'll receive your dining rotation on your "Key to the World" card. The dining rotation will be listed on the front using the first letter of the restaurant name. For example, it may say AERAERA which means you visit Animator's Palate three times (Night 1,4,7) and Enchanted Garden (Night 2, 5) and Royal Court (Night 3, 6) twice. Although scheduling is always subject to change, Formal Night is typically Day Two, Semi-Formal Night Day Six and Pirate Night Day Four. Your first daily cruise newsletter, the Personal Navigator will have all the nights listed when you receive it at check-in. All the dining venues are unique and immersive especially Animator's Palate! This restaurant is truly the heart of Disney and a one-of-a-kind meal experience! When my family sailed on the Disney Fantasy, we experienced the Animation Magic show first and the Undersea Magic on our second visit. Both shows are equally fantastic! 
    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Michele! If you have any additional questions, please let us know!
    Have a magical day!
